Yes, it is true, I am engaged...God is good...
Next to the only blossoming pink flowers in the whole Drakensberg (meaning 'Dragon Mountains' in Afrikaans, and also called Ukhahlamba in the local Zulu language roughly meaning 'Battlement of Spears') during this bleak winter on the highveldt, I popped the big question--actually I had to ask twice because she was laughing from surprise the first time.
But, anyhow, it is done and now only remains for talks about the lobola (brideprice) next year before the wedding can take place. We have begun the process of trying to get her US Visa for Thandi to visit my family and see where I come from before we head back to South Africa together and join back up with YWAM Muizenberg.
